The latest addition to her impressive collection is the movie ‘A Tribe Called Judah,’ which swiftly ascended to claim the third spot in the highest-grossing films of 2023. Within a mere 14 days of its theatrical release, the film garnered an impressive N613 million.

Film One Entertainment took to Instagram to make this significant announcement, hailing ‘A Tribe Called Judah’ as the Nollywood’s highest-grossing masterpiece of 2023.

Notably, Akindele’s production has achieved the extraordinary feat of displacing renowned films like “The Wedding Party” from the top three highest-grossing Nigerian movies of all time.

According to data from the Cinema Exhibitors Association of Nigeria (CEAN), Funke Akindele’s earlier movie, “Battle on The Buka Street,” currently holds the title of the highest-grossing Nigerian movie of all time, having amassed an impressive N668 million. Akindele’s consistent presence in blockbuster hits reaffirms her stature as a dominant force in the Nollywood film industry, setting new standards for success.

Congratulations to her from all of us at NOLLYWOOD LIFE.
